- Collection of reports of abuse and torture to bring perpetrators to justice.
The presidential election in Belarus has been called the “worst election ever” by domestic citizen observers. These observers report a massive scale of electoral fraud, as well as harassment and repression by authorities against rival candidates, opposition activists, and critical voices.
After the election on 9 August, protests against President Lukashenka and his alleged electoral victory broke out. This was followed by a mass wave of arrests of protestors, journalists, human rights activists, and election observers. Currently, several protesters still remain in detention, whom human rights groups have called political prisoners, and 80 persons are missing. Amongst those detained are also election observers. There are also mounting reports of abuse and torture being committed by law enforcement officers.
